Have you joined yet?
Word of can be addictive!

I am going to have to live to well over 100 to manage to achieve all the things I have posted that I would like to make, see, cook, read, watch!!

However I have made a very small step towards that and made this recipe the other night when I had a girls night.
I made this creamy hot chocolate, seeing as it is winter here then having this cooking on such a cold night was just perfect

This picture and recipe came from Mrs Happy Homemaker


1.5 cups cream
1 14oz can Condensed Milk
6 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips

Mix altogether with whisk in the crock pot on low, stir occasionally, let cook for 2 hours on low.
Serve in mugs with marshmallows on top

I found this amazingly over sweet, the condensed milk just sent it too much over the sweetness edge for my liking, and my diabetic husband nearly had to take more insulin after just 1 little mouthful of this!
If I was making this again, which I definitely will do, I will omit the condensed milk and add an extra 1/2 cup of cream.
Apart from that this has a yum factor of at least 100.

I have refused to go down that particular rabbit hole, as I know it would be a huge time drain!!!
